What is Hydraulics

Hydraulics is a means of transmitting power by the use of confined fluids. Hydraulics is part of the fluid power family that deal with the mechanical properties of fluids used to multiply force and modify motion. The use of hydraulics range throughout all industries and can be seen in construction, manufacturing, mining, marine, agriculture, forestry, and aviation. Without safety based knowledge of hydraulics, the nature of volume under pressure can be potentially dangerous.
